Fruit of the Darkest Tree; A Poetic Lenten Memoir

A brave and unconventional memoir reveals itself through daily Lenten meditations by a writer and ‘open and affirming’ congregation pastoral staff member, Carla Christopher. Through the forty days of a Lenten season, Christopher reflects on reconciling the darkest moments of our memory with a trusting faith in a loving God who has an ultimate plan for our good. Told with wry wit, poetic beauty and engaging storytelling, Christopher melds themes from Lenten teachings with tales from her own personal “dark fruit” to unearth a powerful awakening within which anyone can find inspiration and healing.
